Where else should I apply?

Postby tdubsWI » Sun Jan 03, 2010 12:21 pm

3.5, 162, URM

Here is where I have applied so far:
UW-Madison (in state tuition, no bar exam)
DePaul (very interested in their Aviation law program)
Notre Dame (Fee waiver)
Michigan (Fee waiver)
UVA (Fee waiver)

I am most interested in transportation issues and have work experience in the industry. I like living in the midwest, but I still want to be nationally marketable. My current applications are reach-heavy, and was trying to think of some other schools that I should apply to that are closer to my numbers...any ideas?

You aren't going to get a URM boost. You'll get a slight diversity boost but that is it.

Those numbers don't seem to be getting into Texas this cycle, especially for out-of-state applicants.

I was wondering about that. Everyone says its Mex/PR only but I keep getting diversity targeted mailings and fee waivers from schools...

Some people do get a bigger boost than others, so apply far and wide just in case.
